We booked the sunset cruise at the last minute and were happy there were two places for us. Captain Mark and First and Only Mate Suzanne were very personable and provided a wonderful experience. Fortunately, we got to enjoy a beautiful sunset on the Chesapeake Bay. The cost for this cruise is quite reasonable and well worth it. We will... More

Thank you Mark and Suzanne! The sunset cruise could not have been better. It was overcast when we headed out on the bay but the sky over the western horizon cleared and we witnessed a stunning sunset! The sailboat is lovely, captain and his first mate were so nice. Haven't been that relaxed in a very long time!

Enjoyed a lovely 90 minutes sailing on the Blue crab Chesapeake Charters. They didn't have a cruise scheduled for that Wed. Evening but they scheduled one for us and one other couple signed up too. Very Accommodating! Captain Mark and his wife Suzanne were friendly and offered Margaritas enroute. Water was very smooth that evening. Good breeze gave us a... More

Enjoyed this cruise. Nice sailboat, great Captain to provide a pleasant experience if you have never sailed before. Captain Mark knows his boat along with the bay. Provides an hour and a half trip. Stops on the way back to the harbor so his guests can watch the setting sun. Beautiful sunset it was. Would love to do this again!... More

Mark was on time and ready to go when we got there. Friendly and knowledgeable. We had margaritas on board and were sailing in the bay for about an hour and a half. Nice boat. Book early for a private tour though. Good Luck with Island Girl Mark.

Captain Mark and Suzanne offer a 90-minute sail that should not be missed when you go to Rock Hall. There is no better way to experience the Chesapeake or see the beautiful homes that line the shore. The best part is, you just have to show up! No lessons, no worries! Bring your camera, sit back and enjoy! We highly... More

We got off to a rocky start due to miscommunication so, call & confirm your trip but, with that said. Captain Mark and Suzanne did everything in their power to make things right. They were excellent hosts from the complimentary drinks,excellent music, to letting me sail the boat & almost dumping my hubby in the drink, ( only kidding Mark... More

Hubby and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary on the sunset cruise. We had high hopes of a nice, romantic evening out. Suzanne called to confirm the week of. We brought a bottle of wine with us to share on the cruise. Mark and Suzanne were wonderful hosts! Mark showed hubby how to steer the boat, which he loved. Another... More

My friends and I had a wonderful cruise on Saturday, June 11! Captain Mark was a great sailor and wonderful host and told some fun sea stories. It was a highlight of our girls' reunion weekend! Book your trip now... You won't be disappointed unless the weather is bad!
